We are looking for projects that add value or improve the high street offer in order to help businesses survive and thrive.
East Riding of Yorkshire Council (ERYC) want to support ideas/projects that will help to revitalise, and repurpose, our high street spaces and rural communities. At this crucial time with the high street being significantly hit by the Covid pandemic the scheme is available to support and revitalise our business community, particularly as we move into recovery.
Love Your High Street is an initiative offering grant funding to a maximum of £10,000 per applicant. The objective is to support ideas from local businesses, town/parish councils, organisations/community groups with projects that will help revive our high streets and help them to flourish for the future. Supporting the Council's priorities and vision for Growing the Economy and Valuing the Environment.
Whether it's tidying up a high street shopfront, diversifying a business, launching a business, bringing back an empty high street unit/first floor space into practical use, a social enterprise or community group embarking on a high street venture or an event to attract more visitors - we want to hear from you.
Grants of up to £10,000 will be awarded to projects that meet the criteria as outlined in the Who can apply? section (above). We are open to creative solutions that can make short-term impact and have long-term goals.
From the simple to the extraordinary, East Riding of Yorkshire Council's business team will be on hand to support you as you turn your ideas into reality, and bring life back to our high streets.Back to top
